The journey starts for most by joining the Sisters at Circular Quay to catch the ferry across to the zoo. The group will then catch the cable car or bus up to the top gate.
At the top gate, we are met and by zoo guides and zoo keepers. Subject to the availability, there is likely to be some Australian fauna that can be gently petted (under supervision, of course), or observed in the arms of their keepers.
The Sisters walk around the zoo is accompanied by the knowledgeable guides and we will focus on visiting the Australian contingent. Along the way, the Sisters will be able to share some of the recipes and cooking techniques that were used in the 19th century. In fact, some of the recipes are still in vogue today.
The Sisters may well also take the opportunity to read selected poems to the animals for their edification.
The escorted walk will conclude as the Sisters get to the celebrated Bird Show at 12 noon or an alternative special event such as dingo feeding time.
Thereafter, participants are invited to join the Sisters for lunch, and/or to explore other parts of the zoo at their leisure.
